Since graduating from elementary school, Robbie is now in high school and has a couple years under his belt.
Looking at the completion of high school all of his friends are now gone since Robbie has always struggled with school. So he continues to roam the halls in large groups of one and spends his downtime in the library just trying to relax and get his mind right.
His grades continue to struggle to stay at passing, some classes it looks like he does very well in but his grades certainly don’t reflect it, when it comes time to do homework at home. He doesn’t do it, he tries to stay as far away from it as possible because it only makes him think about what goes on at school.
During the school hours he’s basically a walking target for any bully who feels that they need a quick pick me up, besides what’s not to pick on ?. He’s a short fat kid who doesn’t have the greatest looking physical features and he roams the halls wearing track pants. So for many bullies he’s a very easy target, but Robbie continues to roam the halls just having barely enough energy mentally to make it through the day.
At night he buries his face into his pillow and lets it all out, the tears roll down his face.
This continues for weeks, when his parents start talking to him about it he opens up on the subject stating that it’s been happening since grade ten and seemed to have progressed to getting worse as years went on.
His large group of one has never changed, he did have a few friends he would talk to in between classes but never said much to them as they were all busy in the lives they held. Most had other things going on, but not Robbie he was quiet and shy another thing that makes him an easy target.
During one class he was asked to write about his dreams or a nightmare, so Robbie thought “if I write about what goes on it can kind of be like an anonymous note and perhaps things will get stopped. However that wasn’t the case, the story was taken out of context and his words were twisted up and made him look bad. The school started to paint him as the villain of it all
As the days ticked down and it edged closer to the end of the school year, Robbie was given an option. He could remain in school to get his final few credits or he could drop out.
That night his parents wanted to talk to him, however they never did get that chance since Robbie kept himself in his bedroom as per usual face buried into his pillow until he fell asleep.
In the morning he ran into his Mom before he caught the bus and that’s when it was mentioned “Your Father and I were hoping to talk to you last night about the decision but we’ve decided to leave it up to you”
Robbie gave his Mom a hug and walked off to catch the bus.
When he got to school he wasted no time dropping his backpack and waiting to speak to who he had to in order to tell them that he was done with things and was going to drop out. He pulled his books out of his backpack handed them in signed any documents and walked away.
Thinking things were about to get better, they weren’t.
He continued to have nightmares about what happened during school, keeping him awake at night. Making it difficult for him to sleep.
